Gallbladder disease: Many women develop symptomatic gallstones in pregnancy and often afterwards. Going on a low fat diet may help. However, many women need surgery right after pregnancy . Surgery can be done during the pregnancy. It can be done with small incisions in early pregnancy. Usually we try to hold off surgery until after the pregnancy unless there are signs of infections or the pain is not getting better. ...Read more

It : It sounds as though you probably have a low likelihood of being pregnant. As doctors, the first thing we do when we hear that a fertile woman is having a missed period or abnormal spotting, we check a pregnancy test. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period and a doctor's test can tell around when you should be getting your next period. Did you take your tests too soon? You should maybe check one more to be certain. There are other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period such as: stress, diet, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or polycystic ovarian syndrome. If you continue to have an irregular cycle, you should give your doctor or your ob/gyne a call. Good luck! ...Read more

How do U know ?: Isn't ovulating ???? Any excited penis will secrete sperm continuously during intercourse, and it only takes one to establish pregnancy.The scene you describe seems to imply low risk but not no risk of pregnancy,Any time you have intercourse without covering up with a condom can result in pregnancy. All forms of birth control occasionally fail, except for abstinence. ...Read more

It is beneficial to give steroids in these circumstances. Cortisone is a different steroid and is not used for this purpose. If your doctor thinks that it is an appropriate use for your shoulder then it can be given. ...Read more
